Can be summed up in four words: Greatest Movie Ever Made
3 November 2000 | by (pa) – See all my reviews

A movie about a garbage man (Tony Danza) who gets hit on the head and becomes a field goal kicking sensation for the Philadelphia Eagles. With a plot like this, can you expect anything less than the greatest movie ever made? This movie has it all: superb acting, comedy, drama, suspense, great action sequences, and a megastar in Tony Danza. What else can I say for you to realize that this is the GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME. Forget "The Godfather" and Citizen Kane. They don't even compare to this movie. *************** out of ********** (15 stars out of 10)

This is to football movies what "Raging Bull" is to boxing movies!!!! The only bummer is that since it aired on television and was not released in theaters, it was disqualified from Oscar consideration. Go rent this classic now!
